These days you might feel like you're at a crossroads: not wanting to stay the same or go back to the way things were, but not really knowing what lies ahead and having some anxiety and fear around the future and what that might look like. Welcome to the human journey!

But it's also these days when the crossroads and transitions seem to be both intensifying and accelerating...So it's more important than ever to stop and reflect on where you are now and where you are going - even if you don't quite know where that is. You want to be in harmony with evolution and where the Universe wants to take you - because the more you resist, the more the discomfort persists.

Most humans don't like change - and like the unknown even less - so if you can make friends with both, you can ease any dis-ease. In other words, the more present and accepting (meaning acknowledging what IS) you can be of any situation, the less suffering you will endure, the more clarity you will get and the faster you can find answers as to the next best steps and then "put one foot in front of the other."

And if you don't know the destination in form, know what the feeling is you're looking for. Is the action you are taking bringing you closer to or farther away from that desired feeling? Use that feeling as a north star and heed your body's wisdom and intuition about where it is pointing you and how you should proceed, if at all.

I also recently learned about a literal formula for success from scholar/teacher/shaman Serge Kahili King: E=mc2 - r. It's using Einstein's famous version as a way to encapsulate a Huna (ancient Hawaiian) understanding and it means Effectiveness = motivation, concentration and confidence, less resistance. It's the "less resistance" part that I think is key (I'm talking to myself here with my physical clutter issues .. but this could mean emotional and mental clutter as well). Perhaps this could help you on your own journey?

I've never run a marathon, but I imagine it's a mental challenge just as, if not more so, than a physical one. It's a great metaphor for life, and these are the themes reflected in today's PGG essay below. Whatever sojourn or project you embark upon, always remember that "a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step," and be gentle, patient and compassionate with yourself along the way. (Good luck to anyone running on Sunday!)

And no matter what the results are of the upcoming election, it's important to remember all the ways in which we have POWER, so we'll be discussing that in this month's CONNECTING WITH KRISTINA online gathering on Tuesday, November 15th. Click here for invitation with more info and registration.

Today's PGG Video of the Week reminds you that "comparison is the thief of joy," and this week's Instagram post is a popular one to remind you that it's important to play along your journey. Today's PGG Vibe of the Week is Kate Bush's Running Up That Hill.
